Written answers (Question to Employment)

The department received a claim for invalidity pension for the lady referred to on 26 February 2019. She has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 28 February 2019. Payment will issue to her nominated post office on 20 June 2019. Any arrears due from 28 February 2019 to 19 June 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible. The lady in question was notified of this decision on 31 May 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
